NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Yale University has hired a former federal prosecutor to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct against a former psychiatry professor at a research facility he ran in the Caribbean. 
Yale President Peter Salovey says former U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly will interview students, alumni and others who may have information about the conduct of Dr. Eugene Redmond, who retired last July after the school started disciplinary proceedings against him.

The school says Redmond had agreed to end an internship program at the facility on St. Kitts after allegations of misconduct first arose in 1994, but could not be verified.
The university says Redmond subsequently revived that program and more allegations surfaced.
Redmond did not immediately return an email to his office in St. Kitts seeking comment.
